Committees and groups
We play a role in international, regional and domestic working groups and committees. These groups help us collaborate and communicate with our regional neighbours, global stakeholders and domestic response agencies.
We represent Australia in international forums—including the International Maritime Organization—about maritime issues, including search and rescue, environmental emergencies and port State control.
Building capacity in the maritime industry
We support skills-based initiatives for those who work in the maritime sector and programs that encourage greater participation and diversity across maritime industries.
Memoranda of understanding
Memoranda of understanding (MOU) are formal documents which guide and formalise our joint activities with domestic and international maritime agencies.
We have intergovernmental agreements with state and territory governments in Australia which support a coordinated response to maritime incidents, pollution events and accidents in the marine environment.
